    Water kefir is a delicious probiotic drink that you can consume to help your digestive health. Kefir water requires kefir grains that you will initially buy but then you can use them over and over. To make kefir water, you will need filtered water and other ingredients to flavor it and help the kefir grains to activate.
    With water kefir, you can add fresh vegetables, fresh or dried herbs, fruit and fruit juices to add flavor to each cup. Drinking one cup a day will keep your digestive system functioning as it should and you will enjoy the great taste with every sip. Water kefir can be suited to fit your needs and your preference. If you need to get more vegetables in your diet, then water kefir may be the way to do that.

    When it comes to berries, no berry takes a stand like blueberries. These tiny blue colored berries are delicious and they are super packed with vitamins and nutrients that you need in your body. The taste is delicious raw, in foods, and in drinks, although some may not like the taste of blueberry after it’s broken down. That’s the good thing about this drink, you can crush the berries if you want or leave them whole. You can also add one or two berries or you can add a handful if you want. The choice is yours.

    Prep the berries

    Before you get started, you will want to wash your berries thoroughly if you are using fresh whole berries. If you opt for frozen berries or dehydrated berries, you won't need to wash them.

    Check on the mixture until it's right

    After the first twelve hours are up, you will want to check on the mixture to see how it tastes. The mixture should taste sweet enough for you and if it's not, then allow it to sit for another four to six hours before sampling it again. This can take up to thirty six hours before it is completely ready. The temperature of your area will be a key factor in how much time it takes. If your room is a little chilli, your mixture may take longer.
